Personal profile

Scholarly biography

From 2006 – 2010 I completed a BSc in Psychology with Neuroscience, first class Honours at the University of Sussex. During this time I also worked a number of jobs as a support worker and healthcare assistant. I then completed a PhD in Psychology at the University of Sussex (2010 – 2014) investigating computerised and internet-based interventions for common forms of mental health problems. My work included the novel application of theories from clinical psychology, human-computer interaction, developmental psychology, and cognitive psychology. I also taught on a number of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. I gained chartered membership of the British Psychological Society in 2015 and completed post-doctoral work at the Centre for Clinical and Community Applications of Health Psychology, University of Southampton (2015 – 2016). Next, I worked on a number of projects in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Group at the University of Bath (2016 – 2017). During this time I was also an Honorary Psychology Assistant working within Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. I began working as a Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Brighton in 2018. 

Approach to teaching

I aim to create a supportive and collaborative environment in which students can explore new ideas and concepts. I believe that learning is an active process and, rather than being passive recipients of information, students are active agents in their own learning. I aim to encourage students to develop a critical approach.  

Research interests

I have research interests in a number of areas, but I am particularly interested in the application of technology to support people who experience mental health problems. I also have a significant interest in investigating mental health interventions and exploring the experiences of people using mental health services.
